Professional Canadian Artist/ artiste Canadienne professionnelle

Dr. Bev Rodin has been a lifeguard, a fashion model, a waitress, a Brownie leader and a chamber choir singer. Bev is a full time Canadian artist who has lived from coast to coast, from Vancouver to the northern St Lawrence River, in small Ontario mining communities and has summered as a child on a prairie farm.

She has taught two and three-dimensional design, colour theory, space planning, drawing, watercolour and acrylic painting to students of all ages, served on conservation boards and written on the subject of connections between art and science.

With her husband, her many adventures have included hiking into Havasu canyon, whitewater canoeing down the Magnetawan River and designing a waterfront summer home. Bev is a proud mother, grandmother and wife. She shares her love of music with her family, finding time for piano, guitar, song and dance.

Bev is a full-time artist who continually transforms and develops her elegant accomplished paintings. A great team of galleries market Bev’s work. Her paintings are collected publicly and privately worldwide and have been juried into prestigious Canadian and international art exhibitions. Bev Rodin is interested in atmospheric light, transparency, movement and moments in time. Internationally collected, each original archival painting on canvas combines large gestural brushwork, sumi-e, traditional and contemporary painting techniques and multiple glazes. In essence, Bev’s art reveals the poetic and the beautiful in the natural phenomena that surround her life. She is internationally known for: Forest Light Series, Shoreline Series and City & Country Gardens.
